Although you were robbed of that dream, you did not miss out on the beautiful family you created together and the love that surrounded you in your life to the very end. Sleep well and welcome the love of those you will be with now.
    Much love to all. Jenny

  29. Alex, they say the true measure of a man is the legacy he leaves behind. We will all remember the smiling, kind hearted gentleman, who would take his shirt off his back to give to someone else in need. You were more than a boss to me, Alex, you were a mate and you didn’t deserve to end your journey this way. Rest easy, Alex, I hope we meet again one day.

  32. To Rosie and family, so very sorry for your loss. Alex was a true gentleman, always greeted you with a smile when you entered the shop. I still remember how fascinated we all were when Alex and Vince first came to Colac East Primary School, so handsome in their suits, we used to wait at the gate for them, they had quite a fan club. They also made quite an impression on the footy field.

    Heartfelt Sympathy to you all, Jenny Gill.

  38. I am so sincerely thinking of you with a breaking heart, beautiful Rosie and whole family at at this very sad time and sending my deepest condolences and love to you and your extended family. Alex was a very close and dearest friend from way back when he was working in Henry Jacobs Manchester department in the latter 1960’s. It was an absolute honour and privilege to have have known you as my friend and I am so grateful for the many chats we had each time I wandered into Marc Furniture. You certainly will be remembered by all whom knew you as very gentle man, with rock solid principles and a huge respect for family and community. I am so grateful to Rosie for affording me the precious moments of sharing and reminiscing with you as I visited you in your home so recently. I am very saddened to have missed your farewell as I was and still am away in Perth, but will always carry your beautiful smile, personality and many beatiful attributes in y heart until we meet again my dear lifelong friend.
    Your suffering is now over, your pain released and you are now at peace……you suffered so graciously and taught me so much.
    Thank you also to Pam and Vince for their care, love and support extended toward me as they too were struggling with dealing with the pain and inevitable loss of their dearly beloved brother and brother in law. You are all such a precious part of my life.
    I will be in touch again Rosie and Pam asap once come home.
    Hugs and love,
    Carol Smit XOXOXO
